Subject: bunga bunga bunga
Rather odd little tale featuring Buster Crabbe and plenty of jungle animal footage (and some animals that really shouldnt be in a jungle in the first place.. Like Lions?) . He's in a race with an evil guy of some kind to retrieve a case of some stolen money in some deep dark jungle. Oh yeah, there's a jungle woman (who speaks perfectly good english) and a gorilla in there too. Pretty bad. Somewhat watchable.
Subject: GREAT DOWNLOAD
The five stars are tri-facto in nature. One, for the movie, two for the quality of the download, and three for providing alternative downloads for people. I love these high GB downloads because I know I’m getting the best possible quality from the source. With Free Download Manager, they are a snap to download, and compression technology programs like Windows DVD maker also love them because they operate on total minutes, not total GB, so a person can make a 5 GB, 90 minute movie, and have it look exactly like the original download using around 2 GB total disc space on a DVD. You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, and low megabyte downloads with other movies are sow’s ears. This is a silk purse download. People who complain about these high megabyte downloads just DON’T GET IT. This is the first review I’ve written, I am so impressed with your download. So a big THANK YOU for making this great movie available!

Subject: What a shame
"AV Geek Skip" has uploaded a large number of DVD rips—always the MPEG2 hot off the DVD, and never transcoded to a more efficient format—but I hadn't seen one of his uploads before where he disabled IA's automatic derivative file generator, which produces the (much smaller) OGG and MP4 files. And that ticks me off, because this looks like a fun film to watch—if for no other reason than to see "Crash" Corrigan and Buster Crabbe "go native."
But, like picfixer wrote, it makes no sense to download this "impossibly huge" file unless you plan to burn your own DVD, or have a really fast broadband connection (like if you live right next door to the phone company, or where you can get FiOS) and plenty of room to spare for multi-gigabyte files. Otherwise, it's just not worth it. I don't usually rate films I haven't seen, so I'll put my "rating" down here at the bottom, instead:
[Update] Many thanks to picfixer for updating his review to post a pointer to another upload. Shame on me for forgetting to search the Archive. I usually do that, but some days are better than others... :/

A STREAMING VERSION AND SMALLER DOWNLOAD OF THIS PRINT IS AVAILABLE HERE:
(3,8 GBs is an impossibly huge file for a 75 minute film, but for what it's worth here is a review) I've known about this movie for years, because as a kid I had the big-time hots for Julie London. Okay! Okay! So I wasn't such a kid! Anyway, this is the usual story of a beautiful jungle girl protected by a guy in a gorilla suit. (Sheena, eat your heart out!) Buster Crabbe actually holds his own as an actor in this one. He's well supported by Prince Modube (Tobo), and adequately supported by Fifi D'Orsay and perennial villain Barton MacLane. Julie London doesn't need to act. With okay production values for a B-feature, this jungle frolic is low budget, lowbrow fun. Four stars if you're in love with Julie London - three stars if you're not. FOOTNOTES: Jackie Newfield, the director's daughter, plays Doreen (Julie London) as a child. The guy in the gorilla suit (Nabonga) is Ray Corrigan of B western fame. Sadly, the occupant of the second gorilla suit is lost to history.
Not bad. Gorilla looks a little motheaten, but the dialogue and acting are reasonable given the time frame. I suspect I saw this in the 1940's or as early TV fare. It is no wonder apes got such bad PR. You can blame it on the movies and screenwriters.

Subject: Nabonga...(at least) as much fun to say as to watch
Nabonga was played by Ray 'Crash' Corrigan who was one of the Three Mesquiteers (a series of Horse Operas in the late 30's). He played apes in "White Gorilla", and "Killer Apes" and the role of "It" in "It, the Terror from Beyond Space" (1958).
He opened Corriganville, a ranch and Western town used for filming TV and movie westerns in the 50's. Kids here in Southern California would often visit it on field trips.
I haven't seen the film yet, so the rating is based on the fact that I really like saying "Nabonga".
Subject: Great entertainment
Fun in the jungle as Buster Crabbe convincingly fights injustice and somehwat less convincingly wrestles a crocodile. As ever Barton MacLane - surely one of Hollywood's most understimated actors - is excellent. Fifi D'orsay and Julie London add glamour and interseting floral hairstyles. But the star is Nabonga the Gorilla, a performance for which the actor surely deserves at least a mention in the credits.
